    How to disable vPro?

      How can I disable vPro backdoor technology? This is an interesting feature, but it compromises my computer's security and opens the door to the NSA and computer hackers. Is there any way to disable this on a Gigabyte motherboard?

          Hi there,

           

          On Intel desktop boards, in the bios there is a option where you can disable Intel AMT which in turn will turn off the vpro feature on the board. However since you are having  a gigabyte motherboard, I would suggest that you contact the motherboard manufacturer to check with them how this can be disabled on your motherboard. The reason is that the bios settings may be different from theat of intle boards, hence making it difficult here to guide you exctly where to find those option in the bios.

              What about Apple products who have this "feature"?
